On Monday, February 16, HitFix came out with the confirming news that the "Twilight" star has been appointed to be one of the presenters at the coveted awards show.
The confirmation was outed days after Laurence Mark, a first-time producer of the 2009 Oscars, hinted to E! Online on an appearance by "Twilight" star(s). "I promise you, there will be a presence," the producer stated. "You'll see. I promise there is and on more than one occasion." The Academy have yet to release any statement regarding this report. Meanwhile, it is still unclear whether Pattinson's co-star Kristen Stewart will also be seen on the show.
